$8 million to support health care trials in rural and remote Australia

Department of Health

The Albanese Government is investing close to $8 million to support innovative health care trials in rural and remote Australia.

The trials involve healthcare professionals working together across disciplines to ensure Australians – no matter where they live – get the right care, at the right time, by the right team.

The 6 projects to receive funding include:

  • Glen Innes Health Hub in regional NSW
  • Sunraysia Community Health Services in Victoria
  • Killarney Medical Centre in Queensland
  • Grand Pacific Health in coastal NSW
  • Healthcare Hubs in central and northwest Victoria
  • Age Well Community Centre in Chinchilla, Queensland.

The grants are part of a $24.7 million, 4-year Government investment under the Innovative Models of Care Program which trials new ways of delivering multidisciplinary primary care in rural and remote communities.
